I'm thinking of getting some movie film, and the best alternative available to me (price per roll- and total investment-wise), is a 400 ft roll. So, how to handle 400ft in the dark? My idea is to get a bulk film loader, and some empty 100ft spools, and respool my film onto them, and load that into my bulk loader. The problem is, nobody sells empty 100 ft spools. So, I thought, is there anybody on here that would let me have a couple 100 ft spools for the price of shipping? If you're looking to seel a bulk loader, I'm interested in that as well.

Or is there a better way? I don't have a proper darkroom, only a small windowless bathroom, so anything that doesn't require a lot of space is appreciated.
